AboutIt has come to my attention that my username is the subject of some debate pronunciation wise.
I shall attempt to correct that before introducing myself proper. 'Syric' is generally pronounced correctly ('Sear-ric'), 'Jaaten' is another beast entirely. 'Jaaten' is pronounced as follows; 'Yah'ten' with slightly more emphasis placed on the second syllable.
For future reference you may refer to me as Jaaten, Ja, Jaa, Syric, or any combination thereof. Now on to the introduction proper:
Jaaten is an oddity, pure and simple. He manages to simultaneously embody many of the stereotypical "American" features (He is a large, blunt man who speaks with a slight though noticeable drawl) and its antithesis (he is well educated, well spoken and has a keen grasp of many subjects, particularly general science and history.)
He is well read with a soft spot for ancient mythologies, mainly of the Norse persuasion. A fervent 'evolutionist' he is currently working his way through various works of popular sciences, in between his scattered readings on the history of the English language.
He is an ED regular, and therefore an elitist p***k. He is sarcastic and arrogant, but is capable of great feats of compassion; once in a blue moon he is genuinely wise.
He was a practicing LaVeyan Satanist, though not a card-carrying member of the CoS for roughly five years. At present he simply considers himself a humble unaffiliated atheist.
On the political spectrum, Jaaten rates as... well depending on who you believe, either a democratic centrist or a far left progressive, depending on your standards, and considers his domestic political views to be more or less inline with those of Teddy Roosevelt.
At this time he is working towards his BA in History and Anthropology at the University of Louisville.
At the moment, Jaaten is owned by the lovely PirateEire
Apparently Jaaten's pocket is the nesting site of a certain well known pixie:

So Saul of Tarsus was going around, persecuting the Christians, and then Yeshua was all "POW, b***h!" and Saul was all "AGHH ******** MY EYES" and Yeshua was all "YER WORKING FOR ME, MUAHAHAHAHAHA." Something like that.
My school had a guest speaker giving a lecture on evolution once. Someone in the audience asked a question, something about how flawed and disputed evolution was.
She threw a stuffed toy at him.
...you know, I think that's a good approach.

... Have I mentioned that I love you recently?
"Oh, you want to wear clothes to school? Well, bully for you, I'm going to come to school in my underwear."

If not then I'm afraid that it's a little late for anything I can do.
|Are you kidding? I've never seen Bleach. Naruto, I hate. Period. The hype killed it, then I decided to see it for myself, subbed. Doing so un-killed it to b***h slap it across the face an disembowel it. Then I saw it dubbed, and that un-killed it again, to chop it into tiny bits, feed it to little puppies, drown them, collect their dead puppy bodies, and urinate on them.
It is a sucktacular anime. I hate it.
Well, it does only in the flawed sense that the Scooby Gang rolls up in the Secular Humanitarian Machine and shows us that the guy changing fish into lizards wasn't God but Old Man Smithers wearing a mask and utilizing a clever system of ropes and pulleys, as well as a little natural selection.
And he would have gotten away with it too, if it weren't for those pesky scientists and their pesky dog.
